Hi! I'm Michael Esteban and I'm a software engineer in Brisbane, Australia.
I work at the Queensland University of Technology within the human-computer interaction (HCI) discipline. I spend my day-to-day developing projects with React, Node and microcontrollers. Since 2016, I've regularly taught programming to primary, high school and university students.
I have a Bachelor of Computer Science / Bachelor of Laws.
